Archistar is a research project funded by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology. It is dedicated to the development of a secure distributed storage architecture for trustworthy cloud usage.
The Archistar framework combines methods from Byzantine fault tolerance, secure multi-party computation, and additional tools from cloud cryptography. A non-functional goal is to provide a base framework for further research into this topic: to achieve this, focus has been set on readability and open-source licenses have been used for all prototype code.
To achieve better readability self-contained aspects were extracted into libraries:
Current Features as of November 2013
- Written in Java7 under an open source license (GPLv2 and LGPLv2)
- Secret sharing through RabinIDS, ShamirPSS, Krawczyk, RabinBenOr
- Byzantine Fault Tolerance through a custom BFT layer
- Tries to not reinvent the wheel, uses existing software as Netty.io
- Developed mostly by the Austrian Institute of Technology and Institute for Applied Information Processing and Communications
